Setup pCloud Sync

Sorry, I am very new to all this and need a little bit of hand holding. I have got the pCloud open in the browser on my Pi. (I also use pCloud with Ubuntu on my main PC and it works really well) I have transferred the Deja Dup back up of my weather data to a pCloud folder. My question is how do I sync my WeatherData folder on my Pi to my pCloud folder. On my PC I can see the icon on my PC and open the GUI. I have a feeling that there is no GUI for the Pi and that the sync has to be done in some work around way. I am not sure where to start. Could somebody please give me a pointer.

Start with the pcloud docs here:

Get it set up on your main computer first.

Then copy the config file to the Pi:

Hopefully that is enough of a hint!

Thanks for that....I have already been through the remote set up.

pi@WeatherPi:~ $ rclone config
Current remotes:

Name Type
==== ====
pcloud pcloud

e) Edit existing remote
n) New remote
d) Delete remote
r) Rename remote
c) Copy remote
s) Set configuration password
q) Quit config


Where do I go from here?

You then need to use rclone sync to copy the files up.

So something like

rclone sync --dry-run /path/to/WeatherData pcloud:WeatherData

remove --dry-run when happy.

Thanks for seems to have worked.....

...but it has not updated the pCloud folder since the first time I ran that command....does that mean that I have to set up the "rclone sync" command as a daily cron job?

Yes you need to run it whenever you want the sync.
